JIRA 5.2.5 - where to include entityengine.xml entries

I am upgrading from JIRA v4.3.3 to v5.2.5 backended with Oracle 11g .The entityengine.xml is no longer used to store DataSource information.

Where do i store the below definitions present from my existing 4.3.3 entityengine.xml to the new version.Not sure if the below can be added to dbconfig.xml.

<datasource name="defaultDS" field-type-name="oracle10g"









<jndi-jdbc jndi-server-name="default" jndi-name="java:comp/env/jdbc/JiraDS"/>

Hey there, GKA.

Not sure whether this will work since the new entityengine.xml mentioned the following:



You should no longer provide a datasource in this file. This is considered a legacy method and will not work if dbconfig.xml is provided or DatabaseConfigurationManager otherwise provides a DatabaseConfig during launch. JIRA now supports in-app database configuration at setup time.


Warm regards,
